Overview

Sophie obtained her BA(Hons) History (First Class) from the University of Auckland. She then worked in financial services before moving to London to complete her GDL in 2018 with Commendation. She received Very Competent on the BPTC in 2019.

During her GDL and BPTC she volunteered with Vocalise, the Gray’s Inn prison debating scheme, the No.5 Chambers and City University Immigration Human Rights Project, and the Free Representation Unit. She took up a number of mooting opportunities, and qualified for the finals of the City University Internal Moot.

Following the BPTC, Sophie was awarded the Middle Temple Fox Scholarship. This involved travelling to Canada to work for a year at Lenczner Slaght LLP, Canada’s leading litigation firm. During the course of that year she worked on a wide array of cases which, amongst other things, related to: company takeovers, disputes around executive contracts and directors’ duties, discrimination allegations, and clinical negligence and related professional discipline cases. She was also able to spend a week at the Ontario Court of Appeal, observing a Canadian Judge, and a week observing inmate appeals.

Sophie is currently completing the Personal Injury seat of her pupillage.
